“Delicious Surf & Turf meal”
Reviewed January 2, 2014

My parents took my wife and I out to Capital Grill for my birthday, and it did not disappoint. They had a surf and turf special (8oz Filet Mignon and King Crab) that all four of us got, and it was delicious. They shelled the crab for us which was helpful, however, I kind of think it is fun to do yourself as well.

We sat in the bar area so we could watch the Gopher football bowl game and they were very accommodating of that and did not detract from the dinner at all.

“Good Food, Good Service”
Reviewed December 26, 2013

Great food...best calamari ever. Great atmosphere. A hostess who borders on rude started the experience off on a sour note...but the service and food made for great evening.

“Great Tradition”
Reviewed December 19, 2013

We love Capital Grille! Great service and very accommodating whether in the Bar or Main Restaurant.
They did not have mint jelly for my lamb so to avoid my disappointment on my birthday they made a version from scratch.

“good solid restaurant”
Reviewed November 21, 2013

Overall a very good dining experience.
The best dish was probably the beef tartare - the sauce that was mixed with the beef was very tasty.
The seafood appetizer platter was also good, but not as amazing as some I have had at other restaurants.
The Chilean seabass was tasty and prepared well.

Top notch service and the food is just fantastic. The water was very attentive and friendly and made a point to ask how quickly we needed to go. Perfect for a date night!
